September is Childhood Cancer Awareness Month!

Date Posted : September 19, 2021

September is Childhood Cancer Awareness Month! We celebrate the progress we've made knowing 80% of children diagnosed with cancer are cured. We bring awareness knowing that 20% don't make it. Of those that do survive, some will have a lower quality of life for the rest of their life from harsh treatments and some children see their cancer return.


The Michael Cuccione Foundation played a pivotal role bringing the revolutionary CAR-T Cell Therapy to BC Children's Hospital and it is saving lives! So far 6 kids who would have had no other option to survive after getting cancer their 2nd time were CURED by this treatment. But this treatment is still in it's trial phase and we are expanding the research to tackle solid tumors which requires $10.5 million in funding.
